Orvieto Classico is one of the best known white wines from Central Italy. Its long history begins with the Etruscans and continues in the Middle Ages when it was a Papal favorite. It is a classic Italian white, made from native varietals - 40% Grechetto, 30% Procanico, and 30% Malvasia - grown in vineyards surrounding the historic hilltop town of Orvieto. To preserve its hallmark freshness, it is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.
La Carraia was founded in 1976 by the Gialletti and Cotarella families. Riccardo Cotarella, one of the most respected authorities on the production and marketing of Italian wines, is the winery’s co-owner and winemaker. La Carraia, thanks to its broad and diverse portfolio, is able to satisfy the needs of casual, value-oriented consumers with products like Sangiovese and Orvieto Classico, and the most demanding of collectors with their Fobiano.
